|My first finish of the year||Feb 23, ’08 9:52 AM
I’ve don it!!! My first finish of 2008. It seems to have taken a long time to do this one – I started it last July, while I was on holiday in England, and put the last stitch in on 21 February. I’m planning to get it framed and put up in my bedroom soon.
Anyway, details. Cirque des Cercles from Ink Circles designs, stitched 1 over 1 on 22 count black hardanger, with Polstitches Dragon floss in Whisps of Silver.
I am still working on St Sophia, but I thought I might make a start on Blossom Time from Papillon Creations, as spring is definitely in the air here in Algeria!
I’m loving how both of these are working up, specially the bright colours of Blossom, which I may keep working on this week, to see if I can finish. There are so many other projects I want to start!!!

I finished Blossom Time yesterday – hurray. I really feel that my stitching is going well this year (well at least something in life is!).
I’m going to be working more on Tribute II this week, but I may make a start on a couple of little projects that I want to do for my mum and dad. I’m just finalising the dates of when I will be going to visit this year – hopefully end of June/beginning of July, so not long to wait. Can’t wait to get back to England – being able to go shopping, buying “proper” chocolate, and of course seeing the family.
